JUUL e-cigarettes are currently the top-selling e-cigarette brand in the US, but their popularity is harming thousands. Injured JUUL e-cigarette users of all ages across the US blame JUUL for developing severe nicotine addictions and sustaining, at times, deadly injuries caused by JUUL devices.
Floods of personal injury claims call out JUUL Labs, manufacturers/sellers of JUUL products, for aggressively unlawfully marketing to minors and failing to properly warn about the severe risks tied to using JUUL products. Users claim e-cigarette manufacturers like JUUL Labs deceive users about the low risk of using their products as thousands form crippling addictions to nicotine in JUUL vaping products and are harmed by the extremely high levels of nicotine in JUUL products.

SEVERE HEALTH IMPACT
Both youth and adults claim vaping JUUL e-cigarettes caused their nicotine addiction and nicotine-related injuries.
While JUUL marketed vaping/JUULing as a safer alternative to cigarette smoking, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states vaping/JUULing is highly unsafe for people under 25. The aerosol released when vaping/JUULing contains a number of harmful chemicals that damage users’ lungs when inhaled.
These chemicals include high levels of nicotine, dangerous flavorants, and cancer-causing chemicals. Nicotine in JUUL products can damage adolescent brain development, which continues into approximately the mid-20s.
The toxic levels of nicotine can dramatically impact adolescents’ memory, learning ability, and attention span. Many filing lawsuits JUUL had no prior medical history of health problems caused by nicotine, but JUUL’s highly addictive JUUL pods drastically impacted users health and caused complications like seizures, strokes, and lung disease.
Claims state JUUL specifically designed their pods to induce quick nicotine addictions. JUUL e-cigarettes’ “JUUL pods”, the liquid cartridges inserted into the e-cigarette, contain highly concentrated levels of nicotine in JUUL- patented “nicotine salts”.
While JUUL Labs claims the level of nicotine in one JUUL pod contains the nicotine equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes, because of their patented highly concentrated form, the actual nicotine levels could equal the nicotine intake of smoking two packs of cigarettes.
Many victims filing lawsuits against JUUL Labs even say that it only took vaping a single JUUL pod for them to become addicted to vaping because of the dangerously concentrated nicotine levels.
Lawsuits filed against JUUL manufacturers and sellers assert JUUL Labs failed to adequately warn users about the highly addictive nature of vaping JUULs. JUUL widely marketed JUUL products as being a safer option to cigarettes, but the high nicotine levels in JUUL pods indicate that they may not be a safer option: they might be worse in some cases.
JUUL attorneys assert JUUL aggressively marketed their products with youth in mind, deliberately downplaying the dangers of vaping JUUL pods.
JUUL pods come in an assortment of "fun" flavors, such as mango, fruit, and creme, JUUL encouraging users to try all of the flavors to find their favorites. The enticing flavors lure in younger users to try vaping JUUL pods, quickly hooking them to the concentrated nicotine levels before even trying another flavor.
The e-cigarette design, as well, is noted for its youthful design. The resemblance to a USB thumb drive makes it easy for youth to not only hide the JUUL, but pass it off as a different, safe piece of technology.
Previous JUUL campaigns feature JUUL e-cigarettes being used by youthful models in brightly colored ads, the models depicted as having fun JUULing alone and with friends. The result of this deceptive marketing is thousands of youth forming high addictions to nicotine, devastating their health.
Recently JUUL devices have been found to overheat and/or explode, causing injuries to users. JUUL devices are handheld, electronic machines that heat the liquid in JUUL pods and vaporize the flavored liquids for users to inhale.
However, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery the devices run on have been found to overheat and explode, damaging users face, hands, etc. Sometimes the JUUL pods have been reported to shoot out with the speed of a bullet, injuring others around the device. Recorded e-cigarette explosions reach over 2,000, and lawsuits claim JUUL Labs failed to properly test and update the JUUL e-cigarette designs to prevent overheating and explosions from happening.
FIGHT FOR YOUR SAFETY: CALL OUT JUUL LABS
Since the introduction of JUUL vaping products into the market in 2015, the number of youth and teens vaping and using tobacco products has spiked exponentially. JUUL Labs' popularity and profit followed a similar rapid growth, with JUUL Labs, formerly Pax, becoming of the fastest startups to reach a $10 billion evaluation.
The root of JUUL’s success? JUUL Labs allegedly created a product that made it easy for users to easily get addicted, therefore maximizing JUUL’s profits. Claims also reveal JUUL marketed their e-cigarettes and pods in a way that not only downplayed the dangers of vaping JUUL products, but specifically targeted youth in their marketing campaigns.
